76th Division (OR) celebrates German Day of Remembrance
While most people celebrate Veteran’s Day weekend with families and friends, more than a hundred people came to Fort Douglas Military Cemetery November 13 to honor the 41 German prisoners of war (POW) who are buried here from both World Wars I and II. The German Day of Remembrance has been celebrated every year at Fort Douglas since 1977. The event began with the presentation of colors by the Air Force ROTC Color Guard, University of Utah, followed with the German and American national anthems.
